All papers used are from Prima. The flower is made from several punches. Lots of paper piecing going on here! The doily is TH/Sizzix Doily die. Got out another TH stencil for the bottom. The top part of the tag I used the Elizabeth Craft Design Tags & More 2 - Deco. Coloured pencils for her face, hands and hair.
The back of the tag. Sentiment and teacups are from Stamping Bella. Used the TH/Sizzix ATC die cut. Tinted some seam binding with DI, Victorian Velvet.
I made this tag for 2 reasons. One, my friend is going through a rough patch right now, and second, I gave her a cup and saucer that was the same pattern as her mom's, that she inherited.
I bought it back in the '70s when I lived on my own, and some friends and I would get together at each other's place once a week for a tea party! Lol! Now, it was just sitting in my cupboard, and at this stage in my life, we are starting to unload, so this was the perfect spot for this cup and saucer; with Melanie!
This is the cup and saucer I gave to Melanie. It's the Royal Albert Petit Point pattern:
This is also ties in with a Flickr group I'm in. Their challenge for July is, "Tag Your It".
Thanks for stopping by! Hope your weekend is filled with craftiness!
